Diner Reviews
  • " Something for everyone. Spend a little or splurge for a special occasion. Waiters were very accommodating without being pretentious. We had a great meal for a reasonable price. Food portions were large. Steak cooked to perfection and crab cakes were wonderful. Plenty of desserts to choose from for a perfect ending to a great meal."

  • "It was a great food experience, everything lived up to reputation in Dallas.In comparison to other famous steakhouses, it would be up with the best, however the dining room experience was cramped and at times awkward with several larger parties VERY close by and loud and rowdy patrons close it was difficult to hear others conversations at our table...not a great business or romantic dinner place. Could be great on a slower night??"

  • "First and foremost, the service was exceptional because the way staff was attentive and persistent. Too bad the food didn't stand up to expectations. The crab cakes were made with the perfect combination of meat and filling but lacked salt. The Chateaubriand was not worth $150 as it also lacked flavor but had the right tenderness. The veal chop was a great cut but definitely not the best I've had in DFW. As for the sides, the garlic mashed potatoes had a subtle hint of garlic, the Mac and cheese wasn't gooey but delicious nonetheless, and asparagus wasn't seasoned. For the finale, the caramel cobbler cheesecake wasn't that great as the apples were still firm."

  • "We dined early, at 6:00 p.m., and by 6:30 you couldn't tell what the person next to you was saying. There were two large groups in the restaurant. The food was okay. The steaks were on par for a steakhouse of this type, but far more expensive. The four of us in our group would not go back given other choices in the metroplex. To sum it up: for a restaurant of this type the food was average at best, the prices were much higher than average, the service was on par, and the noise level was uncomfortable. If you are entertaining clients and want to impress them, they do have some very unique cuts of meat. I cannot recommend it becuase of the value."

  • "We went there for our 30th Wedding Aniversary. The service was outstanding, and the steaks were great. My Wifes was a little undone, which they took care of it right away. My Son's was slightly over done, but still good. For 5 people it cost a little over $500.00. So for me only a place for very special occasions. But I am glad we went there."

  • "Nick and SAMs has a great reputation. But our experience did not live up. We arrived 15 minutes early on a slow Sunday and were told we had to be seated in the bar area, not the main dining room. Our cocktails and oysters were amazing. The sushi was boring. The wine list is extensive but after being told they were out of our third ask, we were pretty frustrated. It was Sunday and there was no sommelier which is alright except when there is no one left who knows the wine. You can only expect to collect 200 dollars a bottle if you are prepared to explain and justify the price. You can't just wing it and hope for the best. Our tomahawk ribeye was over cooked and the sides were flat. For 650, I'd rather go to Neighborhood Services twice"

  • "Good food but not spectacular. For this anniversary outing we were seated facing a service bar in the back of the restaurant so were distracted by all the coming and goings of the wait staff. Very orchestrated movements of staff and their constant comings and goings to talk to us. I felt constantly rushed to move to the next part of the meal. Celebratory champagne came after we'd ordered drinks. At dessert time I ordered hot tea -- no sugar presented. Just little things I noticed that were not handled. Yet they did welcome us on celebrating an anniversary and placed rose petals and a card on the table for us."

  • "We went last night for my mom's birthday, the table we had was awesome, right in the bar area and the host was nice and placed confetti on the table! The food was amazing as usual and the group that brought out our food was really nice! Also, we got a special dessert with a sparkler for my mom's birthday, the guy that brought it out took our picture and was super nice! But, of course the only bad thing to occur was our waitress, she was rude, had an attitude the entire time. We couldn't help but laugh at how rude she was being. We have been to Nick and Sam's many times and never have we experienced a horrible waitress, we loved the food and everyone else was nice, but our waitress really ruined the night."

  • "Outstanding dining experience. One of the best, if not The best rib eye steak I have ever had. This was our first time at Nick and Sam's and we were very pleased. Jamie, our waiter was friendly, informative and took excellent care of us and was very helpful in explaining the menu to us. If I had one criticism was the noise level but that just took some getting used to. All in all an excellent experience and we will be back!"

  • "The service is without question, one of the best I've ever seen. Great ambiance with subtle piano man playing in the background. You cannot go wrong by ordering any steak here. I recommend this for any occasion!"

  • "The food and service were excellent. Our table started with a cold seafood appetizer tray; shrimp cocktail, oysters, mussels, jumbo lump crab meat and all wonderful. I had a veal chop that was as good as it gets. Wonderful dessert and great service without be overbearing, although the waiter was a bit pushy trying to get us to order the more expensive entrees. An outstanding meal and venue."

  • "Our 27 year old picked Nick and Sam's to celebrate his birthday. It was spectacular!! They were ready for us upon arrival and made the whole evening just fabulous! The waiter was perfect and the food was divine! The manager came over to wish us well and brought champange and caviar. I loved the piano music and the decor was so beautiful. We all agreed that was the most fun birthday party we had ever celebrated!!"

  • "After waiting two weeks for our reservation we were sadly underwhelmed. We have eaten at N&S several times and have always enjoyed the experience. First, our waiter was condensending, almost to the point of rudeness. The Cesar salad was wilted, our New York strip was perfectly prepared but on the tough side. Our cauliflower and brussel sprouts were the best part if the meal. With all the marvelous steak houses in Dallas I will probably think twice before returning to N&S."

  • "I would highly recommend Nick & Sam's. We took our son for his 17th birthday. Food was fabulous and they treated us like royalty. They also made a followup call the next day. We definitely will be back."

  • "You can't go wrong here. Everything is made to your liking. There is a great bar scene for the 30+ crowd. Great for event and romantic rendez-vous with your special someone as well as celebrations and business dinners. The service is impeccable. I am never disappointed when I dine at Nick and Sam's. The only thing I would probably say if at all negative would be the noise level. It can get loud quick. An early dinner would be advisable if you would like to actually hear what the people across the table is saying. Other than that...Perfect:)"

  • "Virtually impossible to hear or be heard, and we were in the smaller, quieter room. Pork chop over cooked, and Kobe beef steak over hyped (not nearly as good as at a couple of competitors). The salads were good, and the desserts were good. Too many tables jammed too close together. Too bad. Likely the last visit."

  • "Great food ... great service ... great ambience. Nick & Sam's Steakhouse might just be the best restaurant in Texas !"
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "They get to the point of very good, but miss the mark due to arrogance. Lead server was condescending as were others. Wine service incomplete, no offer of dessert, coffee, or after dinner beverages. Sides were very meager. With so many top notch restaurants to select from, one does not need to feel unappreciated."

  • "Went here for our 2-year anniversary and had a great time. The server was friendly and extremely knowledgeable. The food was unbelievably good. We shared a 22oz bone-in ribeye and the server even offered to cook each side of the steak at a different temp if we so desired (we didn't). The atmosphere and ambience was great. After informing our server we were celebrating 2 years we were given a couple glasses of champagne on the house and a hostess fluttered some rose petals onto our table. It was a nice touch. Other than the fact that it's freezing inside the restaurant (which is quickly remedied with some wine drinking!) I have no complaints. The steak was the best I've had and the 3-cheese Mac was amazing. Just an awesome experience."

  • "This was our second time here, and the food and service was very mediocre compared to the first time we were there. Our steak was bland and extremely over-cooked, the fish lacked seasoning, the side dishes were served cold, and the waiters took forever to come ask if we needed anything. It was our family's Father's Day celebration, and we regret choosing Nick and Sam's for the occasion. Never going back."

  • "The service we received on Friday night was IMPECCABLE!!!!! Our server, Gabriel, was so attentive to our every need and the fact that he remembered us from March and what we ate was incredible. My daughter's steak was a little overcooked (she ordered it that way) and she didn't like it, one of the managers came by to check on us and immediately brought her another that was done to perfection. To round out our dinner, the chef brought us a slice of the red velvet cake and the never seen before Green Apple Cotton Candy. Thank You, Samir, Gabriel and the entire staff for an outstanding evening."

  • "Requested a table away from the piano because the last time we were seating directly in front of the piano. We were seated in a booth in the back of the restaurant. A four top table was next to us and then a large table of eight was next to them. But the acoustics in Nick and Sam's are excellent. Large tables are not so loud and overbearing like in most restaurants and we were able to carry on a conversation. The restaurant was full and we were able to talk at a normal level throughout the entire dinner."

  • "My wife and I went here on our honeymoon and we had a fantastic time! The service was fantastic! We told them it was our honeymoon and they threated us extra special! The 22oz cowboy steak was one of the best I have ever had and I will definitely go back for! The only down side is that it was a little loud but felt like it was still semi private."
